Derry boards gather to discuss goals, obstacles
The town charter requires that the groups meet with the council at least once during the year in January, and more often if needed, said Town Council Chairman Michael Fairbanks, who opened the special meeting.
Each chairman was given six to eight minutes for a presentation.
Frank Bartkiewicz, Planning Board secretary, said one of the major projects the board worked on last year was a sign ordinance, which the council recently approved. The board held eight public hearings on the plan.
Maureen Reno, chairman of the Energy Committee, said the group would like a clearer direction from the town on its role. The committee also needs to know how it can better advise the town on helping to reduce energy costs, she said.
